2014-04-10 15:25:20 - SMi is pleased to announce that the fourth annual MilSatCom Asia Pacific conference is due to take place in Singapore on 14th and 15th May 2014.

This initiative is made up of many different organisations including the Singapore Armed Forces and according to various sources, will have a profound impact on Singapore’s satellite industry. As well as exploring the new satellite opportunities in both the civil and defence sectors, this year’s conference will be focusing particularly on the implications of the US forces moving out to Asia, new technological advancements such as picosatellites and maritime security and other issues facing the industry such as cost-effective usage of satellites.
